MEASUREMENT AND TESTING

To ensure the most accurate and deepest understanding for the products we create, it’s necessary to rigorously measure, test and re-test. To aid in these steps, Tectonic engineering utilizes sophisticated test equipment and methodologies throughout the design process.

Anechoic Chamber

Housed at Tectonic Audio Labs’ headquarters, this chamber is the cornerstone of almost all acoustic measurements we conduct. The chamber has a 19 microphone array, giving 5 degree resolution from 0 – 90 degrees. Combined with a motorized turntable, Audio Precision measurement hardware and specialized scripts, a high resolution 3D balloon plot of a loudspeaker’s radiation can be automatically generated in a matter of hours.

Scanning Laser Vibrometer (Polytec PSV500)

This instrument enables non-contact measurements of a vibrating object by using a laser beam that is scanned over the surface in a defined grid, detecting the velocity at each point. This velocity map can be reconstructed to visualize the bending wave modes and to perform complex calculations on the data set yielding critical information about how our BMR and DML technologies are operating.

Head and Torso Simulator (HATS)

This tool replicates the acoustic properties of an average adult human head, torso, outer ear structure (pinnae) and the ear canals to provide accurate measurements of headsets and related technologies.
